LEGENDARY EL PRIMERO MOVEMENT
The El Primero was the first automatic chronograph in 1969, accurate to an unprecedented one-tenth of a second, courtesy of its fast-beating 5Hz escapement. To this day, the El Primero remains at the head of the pack in the field of mechanical chronographs.
The Cover Girl’s stunning galvanic blue dial bears a most distinctive shark’s tooth track of 300 fine marks to track chronograph readings accurate to one-fifth of a second, in line with the 5Hz beat rate of its El Primero movement.
NIGHT AS DAY
The entire dial and dial details have been treated with luminous paint, from all hands and markers, down to the 300 markers on the racing track, so that timings can be taken, down to 1/5th of a second, even in the dark.
SIGNATURE 'LADDER' BRACELET
A re-make of the Cover Girl is not complete without the signature ‘ladder’ bracelet that it came with.
